Calling all REIGN Members...It's time for GIL!
Jul 14, 2012, 5:45 am

Hello REIGN,
 
  It's time to prepare for our annual Gil Young Memorial Swim Meet which is also a Northwest Zone Meet this year so we can expect more swimmers and lots of fast times in our super pool!  The meet is Friday-Sunday, August 24th-26th.  Warm-ups begin at 3PM on Friday with competition beginning at 4PM.  On Saturday and Sunday, warm-ups begin at 2PM and the meet begins at 3PM (meet info is also below).  I am looking for volunteers to fill the following positions and asking for donations to our hospitality room. If you plan on swimming in the meet, please volunteer whatever time you can.  Talk up the meet to family and friends; you can‘t get any closer to the action then a timers chair!   If this is your first meet, or your first meet in a while, no better way to learn the masters meet ropes then to volunteer.  Take a look below, and if something strikes your fancy, email me back what you would like to do and when you are available and I will add you to my volunteer list! Thanks to you all in advance.  Have fun and swim fast!

Marshals (2 per day)
  Marshals watch the warm-up/warm-down area to be sure people are not diving when they are not supposed to, help clear lanes for starts and after warm-ups and breaks so competition can begin.  Plan to arrive arrive at least 10 minutes before warm-up begins on the day(s) you are to marshal: Friday=2:50PM, Saturday and Sunday=1:50PM

  Not sure what you can do to help…let me know what day(s) you are available and I will find something for you to help out with.  The more the merrier!!
 
Hospitality Donations:
 Our hospitality room is one of the best!!  I will be providing drinks (water, soda, coffee, etc) and some other large items.  Bring whatever you like.   Remember, this is mostly for the officials and our own volunteers; snacks, finger foods, tasty summer treats, etc.  If making a hospitality donation, let me know what you are planning to bring on which day so that I can plan ahead for extra goodies if needed.

two weekends so we will be a DD on the next two weekends. Check the schedule above.

Tuesday and Thursday Nights at DD start times will change as
of Tuesday June 19th to 7:15pm to 8:30pm so 15 min earlier!!!! for the summer:) - (update this has changed back to the regular times 7:30 to 8:45 - we are not starting earlier as emailed out)

Swimathon is going good we are getting close to
the goal I kinda had of 5000. Lets make a last push this week to get your

SWIM-A-THON and Weekend Practice Changes
May 22, 2012, 8:45 pm

Hi Gang, there was some confusion on my part for this weekend about the swimathon! We will do swimathon this Sat May 26th only at DD first group 8am to 10am next group 10am to Noon.  No Practice at Hood. There is a meet at Mt. Hood all weekend so Sun May 27th will be at DD regular practice split format Last Name A-M 9am to 10:30am and N-Z last name 10:30am to Noon.
 
I need to get a head count for swimathon and split the times so we have room at both time slots on Sat at DD. Please email me ASAP which time slot you are swimming in. If you partner up with someone (which is what i suggest) one person can count for the other and switch time slots. I can do some counting as well. There will be snacks and drinks available if you want to take breaks in the 2 hours. Remember I would hope for $50 dollar minimum pledge. Some are way over that already!! Checks payable to MHA only please. If you need paperwork let me know. You can make up swimathon anytime pool is short course at Hood which is mostly Wed nights. Or at DD Tues and Thurs nights. Check with me Aubree or Chip to set up time. The deadline to do this and get pledges in is June 15th!! Let's all try and get behind this it is very important for our future!!
 
Practice on Monday the 28th Holiday will be one only 11:45am to 1pm at Mt. Hood Long Course. Then back to normal schedule, lots of meets in June at Hood so be aware and check website often!!!!
 
Congrats to Joy Ward again for lowering the World Record!!! 200m Back at Bend Meet!!! Nice Job Joy!!  Coach Bake


ORM Swim-A-Thon May 26th at DD Pool - Get your pledges
May 19, 2012, 1:20 pm

Hey Gang, we will be doing our 1st Annual Swim-A-Thon on May 26th at DD Pool. There will not be a regular practice. We will hold two sessions.
 

This is important for many reasons but mainly to contribute like the kids do to keeping us going and at Mt. Hood. My goal is for those who participate to raise between 50 to 100 dollars for their swim. Of course it's great if you can raise more!!! It's a two hour swim to see how many lengths you can do. You can get a flat donation or donation per length like 10 cents per length.  
 

We will do a split format and have a group go from 8am to 10am then a group go from 10am to Noon. We will have water and healthy snacks if you want to take a break during the swim. You will need a counter for your lengths swam. If you can't do it on that date you can make separate arrangements with me to do it some other time no problem. Let's show the kids and your pledgers, what we can do!!! The date to collect all pledges and turn them in will be June 15th!! All checks should be made out to MHA.  Coach Bake
